It’s been a lil’ bit since I’ve posted. I just came back from a cruise. Much needed:
How perfect does this look? *swoons*
Anywho, I’ve worn about three “notable” looks while on the cruise. Check ’em out:
First look (on the day the ship departed):
Eyes: MAC Expensive Pink e/s on the lid, MAC Bronze e/s in the crease and MAC Vanilla pigment as a brow highlight.
Lips: MAC Heaux lipstick and MAC Nightmoth lip liner
Apparently, the flash of my camera loves my concealer. *sigh*
Here’s a pic without flash to show that my concealer didn’t look horrid in person. LOL. It also captures my eye look better.
EYES: MAC Uninterrupted Pro Longwear e/s in the crease, MAC Naked pigment on 2/3rd of lid and MAC Indian Ink e/s on the outer third.
CHEEKS: Guerlain Four Seasons bronzer and NARS Mata Hara blush
LIPS: MAC Riri Boy lipstick and MAC Vino lip liner
Last look (I loved how my foundation and concealer looked (BECCA Matte Skin Shine Proof foundation in Tobacco and Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX09)). You know when you have one of those GREAT makeup days? This was one of them.):
I KNEW I was truly tanning when I didn’t have to mix Tobacco with Bamboo foundations and wear Tobacco alone. LOL
EYES: MAC Vanilla pigment on 2/3rd of lid, NARS Mekong e/s on outer third, MAC Uninterrupted pro longwear e/s in the crease.
CHEEKS: Guerlain Four Seasons Bronzer
LIPS: MAC Embrace Me lipstick with MAC Currant lip liner
As a result of the vacation, I’ve tanned quite significantly. LOL! I love it, though. I went down about four to five shades. Take a look at what I mean:
The first photo was in April and since around the end of May/early June (the second photo), my skin started to tan. I can tan from just walking outside for an hour, but this vacation sped up the process 100 times more, LOL!!!
Here’s an even better shot of my tan from this vacation:
I look a good sixteen years old, here. Thank goodness for makeup. LOL. That’s all I’ll say about that.
See the very noticeable difference between the first photo in my collage and this photo above? The wonders of easily-tanned skin, I tell ya! I love it!!! It’s like I went from being a NC42 to a NC50/55, LOL. I’ve truly been sun-kissed. ‘More like sun French-kissed.
That about wraps it up for my post. I wanted to do a YouTube video before I left, but I had no time. So my plan is to do one (or two) before this week goes. Stay tuned! 🙂
